Lately, many business people seem to be looking for the secret to having more energy, being more relaxed, and being able to get more accomplished.
How did it get to be October already? At a recent networking breakfast, the conversation at my table was centered on two questions: How did summer go by so fast, and Why didn’t more of these people take time off to enjoy and appreciate life? There was a lot of grumbling about how busy everyone is these days, and how they need to be reminded to “have a life.” The word “stressed” was used several times. One table guest lamented that even though she was working more, she still went home at the end of the day feeling like she hadn’t accomplished everything she’d set out to do. Another told us that he has been known to find excuses for not taking a time out when he’s overwhelmed at work.
